Pros: Trouble-free installation of this awesome SSD on ASUS P6X58D mobo sporting SATA III interface. Windows 7 Experience Index for primary hard drive is now maxed out at 7.9. Most noticeable improvement is speedy loading time for Photoshop CS4 and numberous installed plug-ins, which used to sluggish at best. Loading of large raw photo files is nearly instantaneous. WRT to benchmark results, read/write performance from this SSD is roughly 10x that of my now-archaic 7200 RPM HDD. Stunning.
Overall Review: If installing this SATA III SDD in a Corsair Obsidian 800D case, do not install in one of the 4 hot-swap bays. The interface in those bays is SATA II only, and your mobo may not recognize the shiny new SATA III SSD at all. Instead, connect the SDD directly to an SATA III port (if your mobo has one).
